Currently there are cases of human infection of the swine flu found in some
countries and regions. With the high infectivity of this disease, children are
susceptible to it for their low resistance. In order to avoid cross infection
during the process of adoption in registration and protect the health of
children in orphanages as well as the adoptive parents, we hereby announce that:
1. Adoption agencies are required to counsel the adoptive parents who have
received Notice of Coming to China for Adoption to postpone their trip to China
for the registration procedure.
2. The validity period of Notice of Coming to China for Adoption issued between
March 1 to April 30 this year is prolonged from three months to five months
(There is no need to update the paper).
3. Adoptive families are advised to follow the arrangement of local registration
authorities and cooperate during the entrustment of child for the harmony period
and the adoption registration process.
4. If adoptive parents feel unwell during their stay in China for the
registration procedure, they shall go to the hospital for medical checkup in
time and report to CCAA about relevant situation.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
